    All Gates Broken Railroad Crossing

    August 9, 2019

    Okay ladies and gentlemen another
    crossing here with hurricane Irma damage this one all four crossing gates
    suffered damage here okay this is the crossing at South West 137th Avenue just
    south of 160th Street and south of Gold Coast Railroad Museum here are the
    FPL lights Sorry FPL power lines and then here is
    the first victim this guy cracked right over there. This is a
    fiberglass crossing gate you see that the fibers were torn off right there due to the heavy winds of a hurricane Irma it doesn’t matter much because this part
    of the CSX Homestead Sub division is it’s not officially abandoned but it’s
    all unused and then I’m gonna wait so look at this one here this is facing
    Northwest and then look at this guy this is the median crossing looking
    north on 137th Avenue and then wait I’m gonna wait till all these cars pass, I don’t want to get runned over today okay I’m gonna make a run for it and then here’s the other one okay so as you can see CSX Homestead
    subdivision milepost 54.60 Safe tran signal base safe tran gate mechanism you can see
    the DOT tag and safe tran systems lights E dinger up top and look at the
    gate itself As I said so this here is facing
    northwest the next crossing down this line will be the Southwest 152nd Street
    crossing See if I zoom in here and then that’s south
    Southwest yeah so this is North East and this is a Southwest view

    Abandoned Railroad Urban Exploration

    August 9, 2019

    Hello ladies and gentleman as I
    disembark the RailROL82 mobile over here in North Miami, I’m going to show you
    guys an abandoned railroad spur here I’m also going to include a link to the
    Google Maps link a location on this place over here so this is facing south
    west north and east let me go ahead and start the tour okay see so you guys see
    that one and I have a feeling that there might be another one in there okay so
    here’s where this one starts yeah I knew it! Always go with your gut
    there it is that piece of a cross tie sometimes these nails have dates on them pretty
    on there so that tree looks about a few years old to say the least maybe ten
    years old and that rail over there is pretty old real that’s like the kind of
    really have on the CSX Homestead subdivision sometimes these nails have
    the dates on them let me see No not this one okay so now we’re facing east and
    let’s see if we find anything interesting along the ride here so it’ll be
    pretty difficult for train to come through here wouldn’t it and then there we got the one that’s
    covered with bushes actually we got three there’s a third
    one over there three and this one keeps going and I think we’re gonna be, that tree is
    gonna put an end to our filming yeah cuz I do not intend to go over there. Either way
    yeah that’s way covered in bushes that way so I will head back towards the
    RailROL82 mobile now and right now I’m walking west The rain so yeah guys, if you guys know when or if
    you ever saw the spur being serviced know of when it was abandoned, around what year or CSX or seaboard of the last one to use it. please comment below I’d love to know. Thank you very much for viewing, Please Subscribe and like over and out

    Railroad Crossing Workout

    August 9, 2019

    Hello ladies and gentlemen, RailROL82 here, today I’m gonna be incorporating two of my favorite things
    in this video I’m gonna incorporate railroad crossing equipment and
    weightlifting so for purposes of this video I’m going to be using a crossing
    equipment but if you don’t have crossing equipment you can get dumbbells or
    barbells and it will suffice so we’re gonna be doing two things we’re
    gonna be doing hammers and we’re going to be doing 21s and we’re gonna be
    doing hammers with this safe tran crossing light okay so hammers instead
    of getting it I’m gonna step back so you can see instead of grabbing it like this
    as you normally would you would grab it like this straight so when you do that you work the top
    part of the forearm and the peak of the bicep do ten reps one down to a 15
    degree angle hold it back up two three four five six seven eight nine ten
    yeah man they leave you nice and vascular afterwards okay then you do the
    same thing with the other side so you’re gonna grab it and going to do hammers 1, 15 degrees, 2 hold to 15 degrees three for
    five six seven oh cheese seven eight 9 10 okay that’s that part of it then you’re
    gonna do four sets of ten reps then you’re gonna have your forms looking
    like that. After that you gonna do twenty one twenty one is I’ll explain it to you You’re going to do You’re going to do 7 from the halfway point down like from here to here seven one then seven from the halfway point up and then seven all the way around okay and if you want to hit the top part
    of the forearm again all you gotta do is grab it like this
    same difference 1 wait 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 That is going to leave your bicep nice! forearms too! People are going to think you have pineapples do that a few times alright you guys So that’s your 21 and your hammers for today I’m gonna try
    to work on more these videos so you guys can all can get in shape with me and

    Hidden Abandoned Railroad for Many Years

    August 9, 2019

    all right ladies and gentlemen, RailROL82 here, your railroad archaeologist today I was over here filming the CSX
    subdivision homestead subdivision and I was doing tractors along the track and I
    just noticed something I’ve never ever seen before filming this area and being
    a real fan here this is an abandoned rail spur that used to come into here
    and I just blew my mind I’ve never seen this one before
    look at this the ties from 19 from 1926 well I guess I’d never seen him before
    because they probably just recently cut the grass but yeah I never knew this was
    here you got tie plates over here piece of
    history that would be facing south west facing north east that’s the last time
    cross tie there and then this is the crossing itself I’ll include a Google
    Maps link to this location it’s on Southwest two five six feet so here you
    can see there’s there’s sugar cane going on the track it’s as far as the eye
    could see oh I’m gonna have to do an update video on this series because this
    growth is gonna get incredibly dense in the coming months with rainy season
    coming up so this is gonna get really scary you know matter of fact you can’t
    even tell at some point that there’s rails you and this is the south side of
    crossing on the north side give you a close-up here oh look at that this thing
    is practically my size watch craziness so Southwest to 56 feet
    milepost 62 point 44 got an old rusted machete here I’m still blown away that I
    was able to find that that old super over there that has been abandoned for
    decades and I’m assuming this is where it crossed at me over here you can’t
    even see where it connected to the main anymore so this is a a bar over here
    looks like something out of Armageddon and we got more growth more sugarcane on
    the line oh okay so I found one shred of evidence that it was a spur here look on
    this tie type it was and adventure it out that way
    wow this is one of my greatest finding guys and I thank you for sharing it
    would be incredible so over here it feels like I’m in the
    Amazon all these overblown trees and shrubs and sugar cane whatnot yep
    this is one it when our hobby starts getting sad guys when you see all this
    lost potential wasted potential and this history thrown away here
    this was bill in 1926 it’s a piece of Miami and South Florida history and real
    history and they’re just letting it rot unbelievable
    Wow this I have a feeling this is gonna be all girls are gonna be pulled and
    this is gonna be turned into a bike trip so amazing
    well plus weight well at least we have this video to preserve this line and then the switch was probably
    somewhere over here at that time so yeah all right my friends thank you for
    viewing and sharing history with me greatly appreciate it
    please like or comment below over and out
